Arturo Enrique Ochoa: Gets 50 Years for Luring Boys His Mom Was Caring for into Child-Porn Videos

Arturo Enrique Ochoa, 23, is going to federal prison for 50 years for using candy and video games to lure the young boys his mother was caring for into child-porn videos.

Ochoa was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Sim lake; he had entered a guilty plea in May.

Prosecutors say Ochoa also performed oral sex on one young boy, and his child-porn collection included "more than 300,000 images and 6,200 videos...[some of which] involved minors under the age of 12 and sadistic and masochistic conduct."

Ochoa said he'd been viewing child porn and sharing it on the Net for years.

His mother looked after children in their Houston home. A 2010 investigation "revealed that Ochoa was targeting young boys his mother was caring for and molesting them," the U.S. Attorney's office said. "Agents learned that children regularly visited Ochoa's apartment and that he gave the children money or offered to buy them video games to obtain their cooperation."

He shot some of these rapes with video and still cameras.

"Ochoa produced more than 200 images and videos involving six local children, who were located and identified by the task force," the USAO said. "Ochoa admitted to performing oral sex on a 12-year-old male child and there is at least one video depicting this child among the images seized."

He had "approximately 10 gigabytes of child pornography" in his possession when he was arrested, prosecutors said. He's been in custody ever since.
